If someone has the HPV virus but their pap smear is normal, what treatment is available to get rid of the HPV virus?

None. It's not possible to eradicate the hpv virus, but you can learn the isotype to see if you have increased risks for cervical dysplasia/cancer. If your cervix looks normal and your pap is normal, just make sure to continue your exams as directed by your doc. Always keep track of any abnormal bleeding or post-coital bleeding and let your doc know this as well, especially of you have high risk hpv.
Patience. The body is capable of clearing hpv over time. 80% of women who contract hpv will clear it within one year. 90% will have cleared hpv within 3 years. About 10% of women will require more than 3 years to clear the virus - or they never clear it. They are at greatest risk for complications due to hpv, including cervical cancer.
Don't smoke...and. Clearing hpv infections once and for all is something your immune system should do. If you are over 30 and have had two normal paps that were hpv positive, it is recommended that you have a colposcopy done. If you have been dealing with abnormal paps on and off for several years and again are over the age of 30 or even 40, talk to your doctor about curative procedures. Smoking decreases cure.

My sister's dr just found HPV and precancer cells after a pap smear. They say there's no treatment but to keep getting annuals regularly. Is this true?

Yes. I'm glad your sister had this caught early. It's not that there is "no treatment"; it's simply that it's safest to watch very, very closely and not do anything else just now. Back in the bad old days, 30000 women, many of them young, died in the usa each year of cervical cancer. Proper screening & management has reduced this is to almost none. Read more...

Was diagnosed with HPV 18, but normal Pap smear. Is there anything I can do to combat this virus? Can you get cancers other than cervical from it?

Will I have HPV for life? I am 24 years old with genital warts and a recent LGSIL pap smear. Will my boyfriend of 6 months get the virus too?

No, not for life. The immune system clears HPV, although it can take up to 2 years. You can assume your BF has already been infected and even might be the source of your infection (you'll never know). Probably he'll never have symptoms, but should keep an eye out for warts. LSIL is mild; you are at low risk for a serious problem. Follow your doc's advice, and also speak with her about HPV vaccination. Read more...
